How to connect to FTP with a web browser?

Solution There are a few ways to connect by FTP to a host. The easiest way is using Internet Explorer which has the best ftp support.

In order to connect by FTP with your browser, you should just use the following address:

ftp://YourFtpUser:YourFtpUserPassword@yourdomain.com

However, if your FTP user to connect is similar to user@yourdomain.com then you will have to URL encode it like this:

ftp://YourFtpUser%40YourDomain.com:YourFtpUserPassword@yourdomain.com

In the above case it is important to note what the FTP username is:

YourFtpUser%40YourDomain.com

This address is URL-encoded and comes from YourFtpUser@YourDomain.com where @ has been substituted with %40, which is the ASCII code for @.
